training and new outrage over senator harry reid's remarks and is he playing politics with the giant tragedy? >> late last night, seven of our marines were killed and many others were injured in that explosion during a training exercise in nevada. and mr. president, it's very important that we continue training our military-- one of the things that sequester is cut back in training and maintenance. cut back in training and maintenance, that's the way the sequester was written. it's just not appropriate, mr. president, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women our marines training at hawthorne and with the sequester cut this stuff back. and with the sequester it's going to cut this stuff back. i just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military, they are significant. significant. >> senator reid wasting no time using this military tragedy our nation's tragedy as an opportunity to talk with the the sequester. it's sparking outrage. senator reid disgusted by your attempt to politicize the seven deaths in nevada, if you possesse
harry reid as he makes remarks on the deaths of seven marines and now some say it was eight. we'll get to the bottom of that. while seeming to tie in the issue of those sequester spending budget changes. we'll take a closer look at mr. reid's remarks and debate the chalaims that he was using the dead marines for political advantage. >> seven dead marines, somebody's sons, somebody's fathers, somebody's brothers, seven dead marines, and this jerk goes to the senate floor and he has to talk about the sequester which had nothing to do with it. the man doesn't have a principled bone in his body, not one. then how'd i get this...

obstruction of appointees has democrats fuming. i'll ask former senator tom daschle if harry reid needs to revisit the filibuster reform. >>> and yesterday it was the president. now democratic leadership looks like they may cave on social security. i'll ask the big congressional panel where they stand. >>> good to have you with us, folks, thanks for watching. people around the country are still buzzing about the man behind the 47% video who revealed his identity on this show last night. now, today the world is getting to know the real scott prody. he described himself on this program as a regular guy. he's got bills to pay, he struggles in the middle class like anybody else. he has a dream to go to law school and he's -- really, here's another thing about him that i think you should know. he's a bartender. this is interesting. bartenders are in the service and hospitality industry, they are also some of the best armchair psychologists you can find. some of the best people readers on the earth. they can tell if somebody's in a good mood, one of the nicest people you've ever met. you know
, not exactly like yours. >>> our second story "out front," can harry reid cave? so today he shelved the assault weapons ban introduced by the democratic colleague senator dianne feinstein. reid's explanation, well, let me play it for you. >> i won't try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. i think the worst of all worlds would be to bring something to the floor and it dies there. >> but did reid really want it to succeed in the first place? "out front," david frum and paul begala. paul, this doesn't sound like the harry reid we all know. this is a guy to say, you know what? 57% of the people in this country favor this assault weapons ban. i'm going to take it to the floor and if republicans want to shoot it down, then you know what? fine. i'll let them take the blame and looking at that and the fact he has a high rating from the nra, one might get a little suspicious. >> first off, he is going to take it to the floor but it's a separate amendment. i will not be part of the larger gun safety bill including things like expanded background checks, m
reform. president obama's initiative to reduce violence in america has been severely weakened. harry reid has announced the most controversial and ambitious part of the president's proposal a ban on assault weapons will not make the final cut when he brings the bill up for debate. >> but, right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues i talked about and what i'm going to try to do. i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best but my best i guess was not good enough. you'd think congress would listen but they clearly listened to the national rifle association and they do. the ban would have outlawed it nearly 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to ten rounds. and in today's "daily news" a removal of the assau
. let me throw a few facts on the table. the government accountability office that works for harry reid and obama, they say 125 billion dollars in estimated improper payments in the federal government? i've got another one of their reports, 510 billion dollars of duplicative wasteful programs in the federal government. that's a lot of money. i've got another document here, a summary of the social security, medicare boards of trustees. i think they work for obama and they say here, medicare and social security cannot sustain protected long-term programs costs and that somebody needs to do something about it very fast. what has obama done about any of this? nothing about the 500 billion dollars. nothing about the 125 billion dollars. nothing about social security, medicare, or medicaid. and then they go around talking about how they care about people. they don't care about anybody. they represent big government, and that's all they represent. >> sean: and mark, the results aren't good. let's be honest here, we have 9 million people, fewer americans in the work force, and 50 million americ
income overall by well over 2 grand. and harry reid says the ryan budget is extreme? to weigh in, kirsten powers and co-host of "the five" dana perino. mike crapo, the senator from idaho asked the budget staff, what about the budget? we haven't seen the details, what do you make of it, what's the cuts and deficit reduction and i'm quoting now, it's zero in the first year in total said a member of that state to the senator. they're not trying, right? zero? >> well, i don't know why anybody's really shocked by this. after all we've heard from many leaders in the democratic party that they don't even think there is a spending problem. so, and the president has made pretty clear that cutting the deficit isn't his top priority. so, you know, i mean i actually don't share that point of view and i think there are democrats who don't share that point of view, but the fact of the matter is the people who are leaders of the democratic party today have been pretty clear they're in the sort of paul krugman camp of this is not a problem. it's a problem that's going to be a problem in ten years and rig
senate majority leader harry reid drew attention to budget cuts and how they could impact military training like that taking place at hawthorne. >> it's just not appropriate, mr. president, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women, our marines were training there in hawthorne and with the sequester it's going to cut the stuff back. >> some marine officials chafed at reid's commence. his spokesman clarified his remarks saying the idea of senator reid thinks that the hawthorne tragedy has anything to do with the sequester is absurd, shepard. >> shepard: jennifer griffin at the pentagon now. the horrible plot at the university of central florida in orlando. tonight, it is very clear the plan was for another virginia tech. murder on a scale that would forever change one of the biggest universities in america. you see, the student behind the foiled murder rampage wrote a checklist. and the last line "give them hell." just one of the many new details that police revealed today. there is a video from a camera that one officer had mounted on his u
, the constituents at home. there are plenty of democrats including majority leader harry reid who have the same basic concerns, and there is a concern about the gun laws like the assault weapons ban would be effective so that you will see the republicans will try to mostly strengthen the mental health aspects of this problem, and they will see, and watch very carefully to see what senators like alaskan senator mark begich and arkansas senator pryor and louisiana senator mary landrieu, and if they don't go towards the gun control side, then the republicans certainly won't. >> and jason, talk about that, because for harry reid, does it cause problem for him being in the committee and he being a gun owner and he being the senator from nevada, will that cause difficulty for him? >> i live in texas, and even here, a huge majority of people are here for closing the gun show loophole and bringing it into the fold here and half of the voters here in texas support banning the assault weapons. voters are speaking out in increasing numbers about doing something about this, taand the new york times is righ
for gun control advocates today. senate majority leader harry reid says a ban on assault weapons will *not be a part of a gun control package he's bringing to the senate floor for debate. he says there's just not enough support. but california senator dianne feinstein, who wrote the bill, says she's been promised a vote. and plans to introduce the assault weapons portion of the bill as an amendment. >> this is very important to me. i am not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people has said every public poll that they support this type of legislation. it is aimed to protect children, schools and shopping malls. and it is aimed to dry up the supply of these over time".over time" >> catherine: while that part of the measure is in limbo. it's likely that the senate will vote on three other measures-- a ban on high capacity ammo clips. a call for universal background checks. and stiffer penalties for gun trafficking. new tonight, there is controversy with local cabdriver's with smart phone applications such as 'ride share'. >> one half the time we are empty because these car
are smart. >> bill: harry reid is not smart. >> i was wrong about that. you have to understand, these two parties are not thinking right now. >> bill: was it a mistake for ryan to put that in there? >> absolutely. we're talking about a dumb idea when his plan while he has put forward a great number and should have the ways to do it. >> bill: the reason it is dumb while the president has the veto pen he is not going to repeal obamacare no matter what they want. it's not going to happen. >> democratic plan would put it into debtor nation status. >> bill: they are in sweden. when we come right back, what the heck happened? on gay biblical characters, taking god off the currency and pinheads of the week. the boys moments away. for your first day? yeah. ♪ dad: you'll be fine, ok? girl: ok. dad: you look so pretty. ♪ i'm overprotective. that's why i got a subaru. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. at od, whatever business you're in, that's the business we're in. with premium service like one of the best on-time delivery records and a low claims ratio, we do whatever it takes to make
ago they try to deal with the fiscal situation in this country. harry reid spoke moments ago. let's take a look at what he had to say. >> as things now stand we are in the midst as i indicated of a filibuster to even try to get on the bill. if we get on the bill tomorrow morning and there are 30 hours waiting around staring at each other, and i just alert everyone, we have our easter recess coming a week from friday, and we are not going to be able to do that. martha: gosh, right, listen to that. do they ever get anything done, they've been waiting for this budget from the senate for how many years and now we are being told they'll just be staring at each other for 30 hours, says harry reid. we'll keep an eye on it. that is the doings on capitol hill. bill: house republicans unveiling their plan. congressman paul ryan argues his idea will balance the budget and pay down our debt without raising taxes. his plan would balance the budget he says within ten years, by 2023 cutting spending by $4.6 trillion with no tax increase. the plan would also p repeal obama care. that is the law r
contacted the senator, but if he truly is under a grand jury investigation, one has to wonder how long harry reid can allow him to stay even if it's temporarily whether he's going to have to end up stepping down temporarily as chairman of foreign relations committee. >>> if the first day of cpac was a look at the republican party's pu future, day two is a look back at the past. dominica nontenara has been sho soaking it all in. i know a lot weird hash going on with donald trump and an alleged press conference, but let me ask you, this is your fourth or fifth different cpac you've covered. describe the atmosphere this year compared to previous years. >> reporter: yeah, i think this is my fifth time i've been to one of these and, you know, it's just a lot different than it had been in previous years. most years it's a pep rally of sorts. people are really fired up for the folks that will be at this event. this time around, you know, it's not quite the same level of oomph, i guess you could say. it's just the energy is not quite there. but it could be because of how much bigger this place is th
, several bills to come out of the judicialry committ committee, go to the floor, harry reid said every senator will have to take a vote on every one of those bills. that includes nine democrats from red states or purple states that are up for re-election this cycle. they're going to have to take very tough votes on that. it will be hard for them. if they don't have 60 votes and the democrats have 55 zmors and they lose nine of their own people? where are they going do get those from? the republican side? highly doubtful. to your point, the gop and nra naturally aligned. >> let's talk more about democrats like joe mansion, a great political story about how he could be president obama's best hope for piecing together a deal. how crucial will be it to have individuals like this who can bridge the divide, try to find some measures that can get bipartisan support from both sides of the aisle? >> listen, i think if you see a joe mansion sort of step up to the plate and go and say listen, we're going to do something on trafficking, we're going to do something on background checks. and we're g
, it's something i'm curious about. you know harry reid pretty well. comes from your state. how much longer do you think he's going to stick around as the majority leader in the senate? >> hasn't indicated to me one way or another. my opinion of harry, he's going to stick around as long as the electorate wil keep him there. he already indicated he wants to run in the next election a couple years from now. harry is a fighter. that's just his nature. he enjoys what he's doing. >> could you also quickly weigh in on the fight going on in new jersey? the lawsuit against new jersey trying to legalize sports betting and join nevada in that ranks. what do you think? >> well, of course, we in nevada prefer monopolies when we're the beneficiaries of monopolies. >> we all do. we all do. >> i think the nfl and ncaa would agree with you. >> yes. that's, of course, whbeen one o the limitations we have to experience by having sports betting, mayor sports franchises and ncaa tournaments stay away from us because of sports betting. new jersey would have that if they were successful in obtaining sport
? >> yeah, and i think the defeatest reaction to harry reid's move yesterday on saying that the assault weapons would be an amendment rather than part of the base package is wrong for a couple of reasons. one is we will get a skroet on assault weapons as an amendment. secondly, it's important to keep in mind the long view here. we're at the beginning of a process, not the end of the process. we are seeing, as david pointed out, not just in colorado but elsewhere, change in public opinion here. public opinion has clearly shifted on the side of sensible gun regulations along the lines we've been talking about, feinstein's proposal and others. what david is pointing out, what you are seeing is similar to the anti-tobacco debate and apartheid debate where congress and washington were the lagging indicators of public opinion so you saw a lot of action happening in the states. colorado is not just the only place, a number of there states are thinking object taking action. it's a much, much better indicator of how quickly public opinion is shifting on something. i think you will see movement i
that gives funding for school security. do you think harry reid made a good move? >> well, it's disappointing. but he's done the calculus and knows that an assault weapon bill will not pass the senate. sadly, i think he also knows that even in the democratically controlled senate, a background check for criminals, a universal background check for all of gun sales, including for criminals will not pass the senate. and it was certainly not going to pass the house. so that's what we're up against. and just so everyone is clear about this, you know, i'm a law-abiding gun owner. i own firearms, i go to a gun store where they run a background check. but it's perfectly legal in 33 states to buy guns from private dealers without a background check. so law-abiding gun owners go to gun stores, criminals go to private gun dealers legally and buy 1,000 weapons a day. it's amazing to me that our members of congress cannot find their backbone enough to require a criminal background check for criminals. >> well, senator feinstein and obviously the assault weapons ban was really what she was pushing hardest.
depots in western nevada monday night. >>> senate majority leader harry reid is removing a proposed assault ban rifle -- assault rifle ban from new gun legislation that he will send to the full senate for consideration. reid says keeping the assault weapons ban would have guaranteed a republican filibuster to block the measure. >> i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. i think the worst of all worlds may be to bring something to the floor and it dies there. >> reid says that senator dianne feinstein could introduce her proposed ban on assault weapons as an amendment to new gun legislation in order to at least get a vote on that. >>> and new shocking sex and drug allegations against the man who used to be the voice of elmo. the 24-year-old is suing kevin clash alleging he smoked crystal meth while engaging in sexual activity with stephens. the lawsuit alleges he also gave sheldon poppers as a sexual aid. that generally refers to capsule that's give users a rush when broken and inhaled. his attorney calls the suit mer

, what harry reid said. we know it's true because we've been reporting on this show really since the gun debate reignited after newtown that it's not just because republicans oppose it. it's also because of democrats, particularly in the senate. in fact, if you look at, we have a set of compiled -- some faces and names of democratic senators. if you look there's about a dozen. these are senators who have either outright said, no way to assault weapons ban, or those who run from us in the hallway when we try to ask or somewhere in between. the reason is most of them come from states where they're the whole concept of gun rights runs very wide and very deep. it would be cultural heresy many of them think to ban any kind of gun and to vote for that. the senators here may support other gun control like background checks or limiting high capacity ammunition clips, even trafficking, and so the thinking and it really has been all along, is that if they put the assault weapons ban in this broad gun control package, then the whole thing will go down whereas if they take it out, and put it as an a
don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. harry reid looked weak yesterday when he stood in front of the camera and almost conceded, we don't have the votes. go out and get them. if that's what you feel for and feel strongly about it, make it happen. i'm shoorry. you can fault the republicans for their views but the republicans will fight until the end for something they believe in. >> tiffany, i'll let you get in. we're going to have to move on to a different subject. i want to talk about an online question from jada pinkett smith, the actress, married to will smith. the actress said she's not pointing fingers, but she's pushing buttons when she talks about white women on the covers of black magazines. pinkett smith posted this question on facebook, here it is. she said if we ask our white sisters who tend to be the guardians of the covers of mainstream magazines to consider women of color to grace these magazines, should we not offer the same consideration to white women to grace our covers? should women extend their powers to other women simply because they are women?
